Descrição: Featuring prominent figures in education, religion, science, and war, Eminent Victorians is a fascinating collection of Victorian biographies. Beginning with a discussion of the achievements of Cardinal Manning, Strachey provides insight on the Cardinals rise to power and follows the creation of the Oxford Movement, which began the development of the Anglo-Catholic church. Sparing no detail, Mannings feud with the influential theologian John Henry Newman and its effects on his career is well highlighted.

As an adventurous mercenary, Gordon navigated conflicts between governments, often decreasing the collateral of war.

This edition of Eminent Victorians by Lytton Strachey features an eye-catching n
